'Maria Ramey's book is packed with 100 musical exercises that I, as a drama facilitator for people with intellectual disability, find instantly engaging. Maria has produced a very clear and well laid out book that is accessible and easy to follow.'

'In conclusion, Group Music Activities for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is a book some music therapists may value having to hand if only for its potential to stimulate new ideas in a field where it is very easy to become "stuck".'
